Saturday's Sharing

Auburn Wesley

Today was our last work day of the week as tomorrow we'll observe the Sabbath by going to church in the morning and taking the day off work. Luckily, a number of the teams were able to finish the projects that they've been working on, including JT, Hannah, Baker, and Amber's team, and the team of Michelle, Kyle, Tayla, Cyd, and myself. There were a lot of mixed emotions during tonight's "highs and lows" of accomplishment, but also sadness for having to say goodbye to the families and people we've been able to help. 

For me, today I had to say goodbye to someone who had a huge impact on me these past few days. I was blessed to have been able to interact with an older Puerto Rican native, named Señiorita Raquel. Raquel has a loving spirit that's unlike anything I've ever seen. She spoke almost no English and my Spanish is limited to what I've learned on Duolingo since February. Despite that, I was able to foster a relationship with her to the point that I felt that saying goodbye to her was like saying goodbye to an old friend. I am super glad we were able to construct a safe home for her and her son to live in and I will miss mi abuela nuevo.
